STOCKTON — Ten Space, a Stockton urban design firm, won the American Planning Association’s 2016 Award of Excellence in Urban Design in California for its Open Window Project.
The award is given to projects in the state that exemplify core urban planning principles. The Open Window Project combines active street-level design, urban greening components and a variety of building and housing options. The goal was to create a diverse tapestry within a downtown built environment.
“When Ten Space set out to create a plan for Downtown Stockton three years ago, we had one goal: weave innovative urban design principles into the existing fabric of our historic downtown to create a vibrant, walkable, and inclusive urban core,” said Ten Space CEO Zac Cort. “This award is a validation of our vision and tireless efforts.”
Ten Space will accept the award at the 2016 American Planning Association Conference in October. The honor from the APA California, qualifies the project for a national APA award which will be determined later this year.
